      It lists her children with Higgs.

      Subject: Higgs - Cushing marriage

      April 16, 1902 F.F. Higgs, proprietor of The Calgary Furniture Company
      married Alice Maud Cushing, daughter of former mayor W. H. Cushing. Does
      anyone have connections to the Higgs family? A son Dr. Higgs worked in
      Calgary and moved to BC prior to 1934.

      I'm looking for any information to identify JF Higgs listed in an index to
      the 1891 census. FF Higgs left home before the 1891 census and may have been
      in Calgary. The Calgary Furniture Company ads regularly appeared in the 1902
      Herald and he was president of the young liberals. Found the wedding
      announcements in Herald and Albertan online newspaper images. -- Elizabeth

      AFHS library has a 530 page book A History of the Higges or Higgs Family
      published in England 1933.
      South Stoke, County of Oxford
      Thatcham, County of Berks

      Chapter XX has The Higgs Family of Bermudas Islands and Charlottetown, PEI
      with the Calgary & BC connection.
      Chapter XXI has the Higgs Family of USA, descendants of John Higgs who
      settled in Virginia about 1650

      The book is interesting for the amount of detail on the Higgs family, closer
      to a one-name study than a traditional family book with all descendants of a
      selected ancestor. It has an index of places, index to subjects, index of
      names and separate index for names in the USA chapter. Lots of pictures and
      some family charts, no maps.
